model 28 wrist pin question
« on: April 24, 2012, 10:46:32 AM »
the wrist pin I have is for a model 252707 its from a .030 kit im using the previous piston with a new set of rings .the problem is when installing the pin it seems a little too snug in the piston and the connecting rod moves but it takes a tiny bit of effort . ive built a few chevy 350's and one or two pontiac 400's but this seems a little out of place.  :confused:
